The partnership was announced at an Enterprise Ireland event held in Amsterdam on 6th January, which was attended by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
After an extensive evaluation period, both parties have signed a partnership agreement that will see Ctrl act as a sales and implementation partner for Ezora within the Netherlands. This partnership will focus initially on the retail sector and will extend to transforming the finance department of businesses across other sectors over time.
Speaking at the Enterprise Ireland event in association with the Dutch Irish Business Association, An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny said:
“The deal announced today between Ezora and Deloitte’s subsidiary business in the Netherlands, Ctrl, is a great example of what is possible when innovative Irish technology businesses think global and look outside of our country to do business. May I wish Ezora continued success as it seeks to rollout its cloud based services both in Ireland and internationally.”
Commenting on the new partnership deal, Alan O’Neill, Co-Founder and CEO of Ezora, said:
“This latest partnership with Ctrl will benefit us by providing us with both the broad commercial reach of the Ctrl organisation in our sales activities and also the industry leading professional expertise of their implementation consultants. This will lead not just to new customers in The Netherlands, but more importantly to satisfied customers who will now be able to use our software to make more informed decisions for their business based on our business intelligence and reporting tools.”
Gert de Jong, Director of Ctrl, said:
“We are excited about this partnership with Ezora. Through the cloud based Ezora and the Ctrl.nl platform, SME clients can get more real-time insights into their business. This helps bring SME clients, especially those in retail, to the next maturity level.”
Enterprise Ireland CEO Julie Sinnamon also welcomed the partnership and said:
“A key focus of Enterprise Ireland’s strategy is to support start-ups and Ezora is an example of a high technology start-up that has global potential. We are delighted that they have partnered with Ctrl”.
